Hold on Now, Youngster... is the debut album by British indie pop band Los Campesinos!, released in February 2008 on Wichita Recordings. It consists of 12 tracks, despite only 11 being listed. This is because "2007: The Year Punk Broke (My Heart)" appears as an unlisted track on the CD version, and as a C-side (the etched orange vinyl) on the double gatefold vinyl.[1][2] It entered the UK album charts at number 72.
